Dentures: A Smart Investment in a New Smile

Dr. Etienne van Zyl can explain dentures cost during a consultation at his Memphis, TN, practice. Dr. van Zyl understands the life-changing impact that dentures can have upon a patient's life, and he can design a treatment plan that will provide you with maximum benefits.

You may choose traditional or implant-supported dentures, which are secured to titanium posts surgically placed in the jaw. The implants make this option more costly, but the procedure offers benefits that traditional dentures cannot match. Other factors can also affect the cost of your denture treatment. The only way to determine the precise cost is to schedule a consultation with Dr. van Zyl.

Traditional Dentures Cost

Traditional dentures cost less than implant-supported dentures. These dentures can be fabricated using acrylic for a natural look. We also offer dentures made from porcelain, which offer unrivaled translucence, resistance to chips and stains, and a more natural appearance than acrylic. Porcelain dentures entail more of an investment, but many patients feel that the confidence and peace of mind they provide make them worth the added cost. Most insurance plans contribute to dentures, and van Zyl Center for Advanced Dentistry will determine if your insurance plan can help cover the cost of your dentures.

Dental implants are the gold standard for replacing missing teeth and restoring oral function.

Implant-supported Dentures Cost

When it comes to supporting your dentures, there is no better solution than dental implantsAn implant-supported denture attaches to implant posts that have been surgically placed in the jawbone. Patients can take advantage of this option when they have no remaining teeth, but their jawbone is healthy enough to support implants. Implant-supported dentures require a more significant investment than traditional dentures.

The total cost of implant-supported dentures includes the sum of the dentures themselves, with associated costs:

  • The cost of implant surgery 
  • The cost of implants, which varies depending upon how many are placed
  • Any necessary sedation 
  • All restoration(s) placed
  • Any preparatory procedures, such as bone grafting

Despite the greater cost, dental implants are simply the gold standard for replacing missing teeth and restoring oral function. In addition to providing excellent support, implants are the only restorative treatment that prevents jawbone atrophy. Also, whereas traditional denture wearers require regular denture adjustments to accommodate changes in the shape of the jaw, implant-supported dentures may never require alteration. This advantage can save you time and money in the long run. 

Other unique benefits of implant-supported dentures include:

  • The ability to eat your favorite foods without worrying that your dentures will slip
  • The ability to speak with renewed clarity 
  • Improved confidence and a desire to smile more
